Parents | Brace Yourselves

This question gets asked most by unsuspecting parents after being told by their kid that the strange looking glass object they were caught in possession of isn’t drug paraphernalia. Well, your instincts are probably correct. So, we’re here to indulge you for asking what does a meth pipe look like. Sure, you can smoke tobacco out of one of these glass pipes but, it’s not likely being used for that.

Straight Meth Pipes or “Oil Burners” are blown glass in varying shapes and sizes. The most common design is referred to as a called a straight shooter or Glass Rose having a slender tube about the diameter of your pinky finger and length as wide as you hand. If there is a bulb at the business end, roughly the size of a ping pong ball with a small hole in it, then it’s truly a “Tweaker’s” Meth or Crack Pipe. The straight glass tube type might have a little bit of screening in it, to catch the meth and residue. The resins left behind after firing the rocks are a dead giveaway.  The above picture should give you an idea to help answer your question of What does a Meth Pipe Look Like.

You can easily turn the tide on an unsuspecting Tweaker by providing them with an ample supply of stables required for consuming Meth while trying to remain under the radar. They will get the message without ever having to say a word. This list can also be used to determine the severity of the problem if specific items on this list are already in possession by the pipe owner:

  • Personal hygiene products are a priority, not an option. Brush your teeth regularly, upwards of 3 times per day to combat the harm meth vapors wreak on tooth enamel.
  • Exfoliating, oil free face wash; is the way to go. Excess sweating is a side effect of using the drug. Before they know it, they’re covered in sores and pimples.
  • Melatonin is a great natural supplement to help induce sleep.
  • A multi-vitamin regimen every day to support the immune system. It also helps user come down easier and keeps them from crashing and burning.
  • Biotene mouthwash and oral spray are necessary staples. Biotene is a mouth wash designed specifically for chronically dry mouths. It cleans, restores, and protects the sensitive areas of the mouth. Biotene counteracts the negative effects of Meth use by hydrating the mouth and locking in moisture.
  • Juice & sports drinks to get some form of nutrients in your system even if the thought of food is nauseating.
  • Chewing gum, lollipops, hard candy, to keep ones mouth busy. Tics develop, especially after the user has been up for multiple days. Clenching my jaw and lick my lips are dead giveaways that something is up, so have them chew on something instead.
  • New Skin for immediate first aid for cut/scrape/burn/etc. One’s immunity is compromised by meth usage so, the body is unable to heal normally
  • Coconut oil and Shea butter for dry skin/nail health. Apply coconut oil to cuticles, split ends, chapped lips, and body.
  • HYDRATION! A Tweaker’s worst enemy. It’s life-saving and one of the biggest determine factors for health and well-being.
